Rectify Esports continues making waves in the FGC with an outstanding performance at Evolution 2019 from Ryan “Big D” Domenico, taking 9th place in Mortal Kombat 11.
In a tournament stacked with killers and nearly 1600 entrants, by far the largest number of entrants ever for a Netherrealm studio fighting game, Big D started his tear handily placing in top 128 on winners side helming his tried-and-true Cetrion. His patented space control would carry him above the competition, even going on to eliminate DJT the God 2-1, qualifying for top 32 on the winner’s side of the bracket.
But a reckoning came when he fought PG Hayate and his Erron black sending him to losers side. Big D was not done though and a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Noble Kombat proved it. Unfortunately, the losers side had been populated by threats such as Tweedy, another heavy hitter and his Evolution run ended in 9th place.
None of this changes that Big D had an emphatic performance at the biggest fighting game tournament in the world with more entrants than any tournament of it’s kind prior. So far in 2019 alone, Big D stands among the best of the best having placed 17th at CEO 2019 and 7th back in May at Combo Breaker 2019. Keeping the momentum from this, it’s very clear that BigD gives even the toughest Mortal Kombat players a reason to “Fear the Sting.”
